Internships in School Psychology: Selection and Accreditation Issues
Keilin, W. Gregory
Psychology in the Schools, v52 n10 p962-971 Dec 2015
Doctoral students in school psychology often report unique issues and challenges when seeking a doctoral internship. The number and range of accredited internship positions available to School Psychology (SP) students in the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) Match is quite limited, and they often obtain non-accredited positions outside of the Match. This article reviews recent data from APA and the APPIC Match to better understand these challenges. In addition, recent and upcoming changes to the accreditation landscape may have a significant impact on SP doctoral programs, internships, and students. Implications of these changes are discussed, and recommendations for the future are provided.
